and outline the next steps i will take. as background, puerto rico has been a u.s. territory since 1898. the island is home to 3.7 million american citizens who cannot vote for president, are not represented in the senate, and elect a nonvoting member to the house. federal law is supreme in puerto rico but its residents are treated unequally under many federal programs. voters were first asked whether they want puerto rico to remain a territory. over 1.7 million people answered. which is about 75% of registered voters on the island. 54% said they did not want the current status to continue while 46% said they did. voters were then asked to express their preference among the three viable alternatives to the current status. statehood, free association and independence. over 1.3 million people chose an option. 61% voted for statehood. 33% voted for free association. and 5.5% voted for independence. in addition, 472,000 voters did not provide an answer. this marked the first time voters were directly asked whether they want puerto rico to remain a territory. one of the two main political pa
and democratic attorney general. one of our two u.s. senators was an independent, elected twice. an independent missed winning the governorship by 15,000 votes over a million passed in 1973. we were the ticket splitting capital of america. we have cents settled back into partisan voting with the rest of america. this is a very polarized era. having said that, when you have close elections you still have a band of voters who will mix and match on the ballot, either because they want to mix and match or they are simply reacting to the individual candidates. in the case of romney and kaine, i have personally been in situations where straw votes were taken among large groups and you generally find you have 3, 4, 5% of the romney boaters picking tim kane for various reasons. some of these romney voters are more moderate republicans and the like tim kane better than his opponent. are there similar voters for obama and george allen? i am sure there are. i never met one of them. but i will say this -- george allen, despite what happened in 2006, he has won from time to time in running for statewide off
a seat. more women got elected to the u.s. senate than at any time in u.s. history. the republican presidential nominee and vice presidential nominee both lost their home states. missouri and montana and west virginia chose democratic governors. west virginia chose its first gay state legislature. so did north dakota. west virginia and north dakota? yeah, seriously. joe lieberman's old seat went to a real democrat in connecticut. the proportion of young people voting compared to 2008, it went up. same with african-americans, up from 2008. same with latinos, up from 2008, not down, up. if you are a liberal or if you are rooting for the democrats, last night was a very, very, very big night. and, oh, yeah, this happened. president barack obama, yes, will go down in history as our nation's first african-american president. but he will also go down in history as the most successful democratic presidential candidate since fdr. president clinton got re-elected too, i know, but only barack obama got re-elected with not just big electoral college margins, but also with majority wins in the
by hour. we will be discussing this new information later in this hour with john bolton a former u.s. ambassador to the united nations. >> heather: lights are coming on for some in new york city while others are learning it could be weeks before their power is restored. mayor mike bloomberg on the latest recovery efforts and help cannot come soon enough for those living in hard hit areas of staten island. david lee miller is standing by with the very latest. >> reporter: let's start with conflicting information. there are reports at this hour that authorities have stopped the free distribution of free gasoline, gasoline from the department of defense that had been delivered to various parts of new york city by using tanker trucks and first responders were eligible to get that gas. i can tell you that here on staten island there is such a tanker truck and gasoline is being distributed to the general public as well as a separate line for first responders. at least here in staten island, free gasoline is available to the general public. authorities say they have at least 36 hour supply
. meanwhile, u.s. officials moving to deescalate the rising violence, advising israel not to enter gaza, fearing it could draw egypt in to that consulate. and joining us the consulate general, good to see you ambassador. >> thank you for having me. >> dave: the latest what we just said. benjamin netanyahu told the cabinet he's ready to significantly be expand its operation in gaza. is israel prepared for a ground invasion into gaza and what could incite that? >> look the mandate from the inception was to remove this strategic threat posed by thousands of rockets on israelis-- innocent israelis paralyzing our entire southern region. so the goal was to remove that threat and the mandate given to the defense forces from the government was not limited in time nor in scope. so in other words, the possibility of israel moving in with ground forces certainly exists, it depends how the operation develops on the ground. right now, hamas is firing rockets. hamas is still displaying a tremendous degree of aggression towards israel and the purpose of this operation is to eliminate that threat. >> m
. >> not yet. okay. all right. candy, thank you. good too to see you, as always. >> good to see you. >> the u.s. embassy in egypt is now shut down. violence between protesters and police has blocked roads around the compound in central cairo. the protesters, they are actually not targeting the embassy. they have been demonstrating, however, for a week. there has been some fighting with riot police around tahrir square. they've got rocks, tear gas being hurled in the streets. demonstrators, they are trying to force president mohammed morsi to give back some of the sweeping powers that he seized earlier in the week. want to go live to cairo. reza sayah is overlooking tahrir square. is it calm where you are, and are people assuming that things are going to get better? there are a lot of critics who vague the broum brotherhood is really now trying to hijack the process, hijack the constitution and get the president to remain in power, as much power as he can hold on to. >> yeah. many of those critics, suzanne, are behind us. still demonstrating here in tahrir square. in the meantime, major developm

day and the u.s. senate race in virginia. tim kaine >> live and in hd, this is "good morning washington." on your side. >> the most expensive race in history now in the hands of voters. president obama and mitt romney watched the clock. the much of the results as they come in for the presidential election. good morning washington. >> happy election day. let's get over to jackie for the latest on this cold election forecast. >> it really is. if you have to wait in line, just for the weather and have a heavier jacket and gloves on. maybe even a hat. other than that, and friday. that is the good news. nothing to prevent you from getting out to the polls. a freeze warning in effect for the major area. temperatures this morning in the mid 20 possible to lower 30's. for the nine in dallas. 28 in gaithersburg. we will stay cool today. average height is 62. we will be lucky to reach 50. the freeze morning and at 9:00 with 38 degrees by noon. private cloudy and 45. the least of all look good today and thankfully our northeast -- our noreaster isn't arriving until toman. let's check on
more on this news throughout the day. iran march deadline the u.s. says for iran to start agreeing and compromising a little bit with the u.n. watchdog group and the nuclear agency. jon, you have more breaking news now? jon: that's right, jenna. according to the reuters news agency and several local reports former u.s. president george h.w. bush is in methodist hospital in houston right now. in fact, ktrk television in houston is reporting that he has actually been there for six days to be treated for bronchitis. we're told the bronchitis has been handled but he has a lingering cough. george h.w. bush was born june 1924. if i am doing my math correctly it means he is 88 years old now. there of course his wife, former first lady bash a bush. he is always very vigorous. remember him parachuting i believe it was his 80th birthday. he was the youngest aviator in the u.s. navy back during world war ii. george h.w. bush, being treated for bronchitis at a houston hospital now. we certainly wish him a speedy recovery. jenna: more on all that breaking news as we get it. in the meantime some
, and one of the topics that came up quite a bit was the attacks on the u.s. embassy and while those of us here that might obviously highlight the need for the securities sector reform i feel like a lot of tunisian actors interpret things very different and to some the less says that we need stronger security forces and that some of the changes, some of the modest changes we might see as positive and the very modest direction of the reform over the past year are seen by some as a cause for the week security forces and the call for incidents like the attacks on the embassies. if you can comment on this tension and how to address that. >> the iron fist notes the outrage. you want to jump in on this? >> sure. i mean, first of all i would sort of like to the secure a sector reform and egypt would weaken the security service more than it already is because there's been very little security sector reform as i don't see evidence of that. but also some of these the assumption that you are necessarily going after the leaders inside the security sector or security sector reform i think is a misconce

successfully to defend itself against hamaz rockets. now the u.s. military wants an iron dome of its own. jennifer griffin is live from the pentagon. could the iron dome protect u.s. bases overseas for instance, jennifer? >> reporter: it probably could. the army has a system but it works differently shooting multiple round of bullets rather than missiles at incoming mortars and rockets. missile defense can be very expensive. $90,000 per rocket for instance fired by the iron dome system. yesterday at the pentagon defense secretary panetta received from the defense minister of israel a mold of a tamir missile, part ever the iron dome system that worked so well during the gaza conflict. the u.s. army is investigating buying an iron dome-type system. we already invested $270 million in sealing the dome. they sealed it in record time, three years, despite many skeptics in israel as well as in the pentagon, jon. jon: if we helped fund the system, and our technology, presumably is part of it, why not just buy an iron dome from israel complete? >> reporter: it's a good question. we've learned th
that tuesday. then on friday afternoon, i received word that the u.s. supreme court had granted a review on a petition by governor bush at the time to review the decision that we had made on the 21st. we had also had a crucial decision in the matter that we had made on thursday, thanksgiving day, having to do with the miami dade county recount. host: that decision was? guest: that we denied a petition for the court to order the canvassing board to continue a recount. canvassing board had made a decision on the wednesday night before thanksgiving to not continue at their account because they determine that there was not enough time within our extended deadline in which to continue and vote and we count the votes in miami dade county. they had sorted some 14,000 votes out that they considered had not been counted by the machines. getgore team treid ied to the court to come in. we cannot overlook the discretion that the canvassing board had decided to not continue the cal. we denied that petition. that was on thursday. the u.s. supreme court the next day granted review and set a briefing sc

the biggest impact in the u.s.? >> one of the most powerful campaigns was the trayvon martin case. a 17-year-old african-american, killed in florida, tragically. two weeks after the incident, there was no media coverage of all. a private injustice. the parents start a petition, and then it goes viral. the importance is not just the individual acts of arresting his killer in prosecuting him, but the public. the result, the awareness of the tragic situation of young african-americans not being treated fairly in the justice system or the "stand your ground" laws, where you can almost impunitively shoot someone. that is some of the really exciting things we see. >> in trayvon martin's case, clearly there was an impact, but they were not waiting. they were in there pretty soon, on the case. what i want to ask you -- do you find a difference in the way that companies -- you have a lot of petitions aimed at companies that do specific things. obviously, some have had more political implications. is there a difference in response between business institutions and political institutions? >> politician
in the way of success. on the day gerald ford became president of the u.s. at a time of national turmoil, this is what he said -- there is no way we can go forward except together. no way anyone can win except by serving the people's urgent needs. we cannot afford to go backward. we must go forward together. so said gerald ford. that is true today as it was back then. today the american people have many urgent needs. they need more jobs. they need economic certainty. they need opportunity and fairness. it is within our power to quickly address the urgent needs. it is one our power to forge an agreement now to middle-class families who can not afford a tax hike. we will ask the richest, most fortunate among us, pay a little extra to reduce the deficit and secure our economic future. it is in our power to push for an agreement that would protect certain tax deductions for families and businesses struggling. it is an hour powerful to forge an agreement to take a balanced approach to reduce spending. we could avert the fiscal cliff for 98% of american families in 97% of small businesses toda
. >> we have to go to break right now. we are just getting warmed up. you are watching the 2012 u.s. senate debate. we will wrap things up right after this. >> our next question comes from our panelists. >> i think this goes to the congressman. you touched on this mask cool fiscal cliff of large spending cuts. this could potentially cost the average person $3,500. will this happen? >> i will do everything i can to see that it doesn't happen. the effective have would be unimaginable. even the secretary of defense has said this is not a good idea. this is a fiscal cliff and this is serious. we need to be serious about it. that is why if we repeal obama care, we will have eliminated that problem. but a form of transportation, there was one individual that was making overcome $170,000. 18 months later, there was 1690 that were making over 170,000. we have a spending country in this -- is spending problem in this country. we need to control our spending first. i can give you all kinds of places where we have ways, fraud, and abuse. >> we cannot be allowed to go over the fiscal cliff. we
go to the u.s. senate and do exactly what john edwards did, and that will immediately start campaigning to be present. i believe our federal legislators are there to take care of federal business and our state legislatures, to be in our -- federal legislators ought to be down in our state, sending dollars to the state, and not sending them to the federal government to have federal legislators play a large game of twister to get the best position. host: bob cusack? guest: the caller mentioned term limits, and it was something mitt romney embraced, and the republicans on capitol hill have not embraced that, and neither have the democrats. it was talked about in the newt gingrich era, but both republicans and democrats are not fond of term limits. there is an argument against it, and that is when members get here, they promised to term- limit themselves, and when they get here they do not know how to legislate, they do not know where the bathrooms are, and just like anything they get experience and better at it, and they break the term-limit pledge. term limits will be discusse
still has faith in john allen, the current u.s. commander in afghanistan who is now under investigation by the pentagon's inspector general for what officials describe as potentially inappropriate e-mails with one of the women directly involved in the case. nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent, andrea mitchell, has more on an ever-widening story. >> reporter: the scandal involving two very different women, tampa socialite jill kelley and petraeus biographer and former mistress paula broadwell ensnared not only petraeus but his successor. marine general john allen who took over from petraeus in afghanistan and is the president's choice to be supreme allied commander of nato forces in europe, a nomination now temporarily on hold. >> thank you for all that you have done, for me and for our precious daughters. >> reporter: the general is married with a sterling record. but on a flight to australia monday night, aides to defense secretary leon panetta disclosed a dramatic turn in the petraeus case. fbi investigators had uncovered what the pentagon called potentially inappropriate commun
, and i think we think it's more likely than not that democrats will gain seats in the u.s. senate. that was unthinkable six months ago. it's going to lead to real recriminations inside the republican party about who made these mistakes and getting these candidates and failing to get people like todd akin out of these races and get electable republicans into these races that they have to be able to win. >> if you look at senate republicans other the last four cycles, they've been pummeled. in 2006 democrats weren't supposed to pick up the senate, they did. in 2008 they expanded to a 60-seat majority, they were able to get health care done as a result of the pickup that they had. in 2010 you had republicans have an opportunity to pick up the senate, they fell short. and now again a huge opportunity this year to pick up the senate, and it looks like they might actually fall backwards because of these races you're talking about, massachusetts, indiana and missouri. i think one of the things that we've learned over the last couple of cycles is when republicans talk about the economy as
stronger and better positioned to surpass the u.s. in a critical marketplace of the 21st century global economy. according to the national association of manufacturers, russia imported over $500 billion in goods last year, and of that total only 5% came from u.s. exports. this bill will lift outdated policies and restrict american access to russian markets. as a result studies show u.s. producers can expect to achieve double-digit increases over the next decade in exports of heavy machinery, agricultural machinery, chemicals, and services. this is particularly critical for my home state of illinois where we have fallen behind japan and korea in these export categories. most importantly, granting russia permanent normal trade relations gives the u.s. a level playing field on which we can compete from a position of strength in thames of intellectual property and agricultural exports. it will provide a reliable forum for trade dispute resolution. and i would urge my colleagues to vote for the rule and the bill to grow american exports and create good jobs here in the united states by suppo
senator from california was once mayor of san francisco and on the eve of her reelection to the u.s. senate she peppers of praise for the city its current mayor. >> also has skills to manage the city and is a tough city today is because this so the first. you have to run the city of from the center of the political spectrum. i really want to say how much i respect to. >> praising feinstein said she hopes the country will come together for president obama. the time is 413 a m. we will be back on the kron 4 morning news stay with us. we are back at 415 and in the second update of the weather. >> good morning erica. >> drastic trained as a head we do have dense fog in fact this morning especially close to to the coastline. and look at visibility 5 mi. for novato 6 highway 37 and through napa. we are seeing 1 mi. visibility for you to those of you using highway 37. that fog is hanging around was the for the next couple of hours. i also on the cool side upper 40's for napa of novato. 51 in santa rosa. 52 in daly city. as we head into the afternoon the fog will start to burn off in we wil
alluded to, also jane harman, former u.s. representative, now head of the woodrow wilson international center for scholars, former chair of the house intelligence committee, i believe. and also, john brennan, homeland security advisor to president obama. talk to us about who may be stepping in to fill the shoes of general petraeus. guest: well, you know, morell is considered sorted of the most likely candidate because, you know, having been the deputy director, he could relatively easily just step in to the directorship, very, very intimately familiar with the agency. the other people are all possibilities, but you need to remember that intelligence jobs have been a little bit hard for the obama white house to fill recently. you had director of national intelligence, jim clapper, nominated some time ago to run the overall intelligence operation and it was reportedly very difficult for the white house to find somebody to take that job. it was reportedly offered to several other people before clapper finally took it. so it would be interesting to see who would be on the list to do this.
and save the u.s. economy from going down a dangerous road. it is wednesday, november 7th, the day after and a special early presentation of "squawk box" follows the late presentation that we had yesterday. but it starts right now. >>> good morning, everyone. welcome to "squawk box" here on cnbc. and yes, we know it's only 5:00 a.m. on the east coast, but you don't have to double check your clocks. on the morning after election day, we couldn't wait until 6:00 a.m. to get back on the air. the american public handing president obama four more years in the white house. meantime, the balance of power stays the same in the senate. this morning, we have two main items on the squawk agenda. after months of handicapping the race, we'll find out how the global markets react to the decision and ask how you need to position your portfolio. we have a number of people on hand to help us with that task, including mike santoli. he is our guest the next hour. chuck gabriel, his job is to try to connect the dots between washington and investors. we have jeremy seigel. also, vincent rinehart. we'll be jo
's amazing. >> the other thing i find amazing is i remember going through the u.s. treasury in the height of the financial crisis, and back then, you had officials who were scribbling down important facts and figures on scrap paper because that was one of the few things they were able to legally throw away and get rid of. and if you go around other branches of the u.s. government today, people are intensely aware of the risks of e-mails being kept. if you go and talk to private sector banks, nobody working on a bank trading floor these days can possibly not be aware of the risks of tracking thoughts and e-mails. and yet somehow the military just seems not to have noticed this. it is very, very striking. >> there's one other dedataidei this "journal" story, kelley had second thoughts. and people said they made the request, quote, she was worried about the personal information being provided to investigators. >> like the diplomatic license plates. >> talk about the horse after it's left the barn door. >> you predicted fiscal cliff would be the fifth question. it's going to be our second top
as a dismal failure certificate is drawn. just curious about your reaction to that. >> u.s. to take these first? >> a dismal failure part i think will be on the right to find us a dismal failure. it was about as dismal a failure as john kerry. their racism the difference between romney losing in bush winning, with just a slight demographic shift in the country from 2004 to 2012. looking not where the republicans go, again, i think the best way to approach a is to try to figure out how you deal with a group -- the key groups. if you done better among women and with the help of todd akin and richard murdoch, you look in their small part. immigration is gearing to the right on immigration and his unwillingness to have a discussion with the voters. with african-american voters and ronnie doesn't have anything to do with this. all the talk about voter suppression for democrats trying to cheat, just increase the turnout tremendously among african-american voters. >> two parts. one of the primary and one in the general that i thought really? the first would be the debate in which he sittin
senate races and look at what we see shaping up in the u.s. senate. with 79 percent of precincts reporting in florida. senator bill nelson keeps his seat. republican challenger congressman connie mack not able to make inroads in florida. west virginia. senator joe mansion also keeping his seat. 61%. the republican challenger, 36%. this was a rematch of a race between the two of them a couple of years ago. and in connecticut, congressman chris mervey. and 44% of the boat with 19 -- the ap has called that connecticut race. the ap has also called the race in maine with angus king. and for more, you can always go to our website. it can see the race, the balance of power, and -- and watch presidential results come in as well. >> boston, chicago, and here, that is where the party headquarters are located. the gentleman who headed up the house committee now speaking to supporters. let's listen in. >> not only did we rebuild before we passed them, but we made sure that the bills were about growing jobs, the american dream, and making things even better. tonight, the american people have
. democrats had a good night in the u.s. senate. >> democrats had a great night in the senate. sherrod brown winner of ohio, our good friend. i know he's independent, but a democratic in our hearts. sanders winning vermont your former employer. elizabeth warren, big big win over scott brown in mass mis. they called that one early. we now have the first openly gay u.s. senator tammy baldwin was elected last night. >> bill: in wisconsin. >> in wisconsin. in virginia, tim cain over george allen. >> bill: big win. >> bill nelson in florida. >> bill: connie mack. >> just demolished him. joe donnelly over richard mourdoch. claire mccaskill over todd akin. in nevada right now they called it just a little while ago that the republican dean holland did call that seat. >> bill: jon tester leading in montana and heidi hidecamp leading. that would be a pick up, north dakota would be holding on to the seat and jon tester would be reelect the. so a great night in the senate 53 to the republicans 45, democrats could get up to 55 if those two go the other way. they look like they're going to go and then hou
